The annual meeting of the Fraser  Valley Development League will    be  held in New Westminster on Friday.  March 12, when it will be decided as  to whether-the League will.be carried oh-for the coming year-or not.  During the past year the League  has not had the.support of the Municipalities that it should have received,   nevertheless  it   is  an  organization that should be the means of a  lot'of good being done in the way "of  bringing to.the attention of-the powers that be' the' requirements of the  farmers of the Fraser Valley.  It is not definitely known yet as  to whether-the. League-will wind up  its affairs and call it quits or not,  but in reviewing the work taken up  during the past year or two of its  existence, it must be remembered it  was the Fraser Valley Development  League that first called to the attention of government the necessity for  having, a market commissioner for  the Fraser Valley by appointing Mr.  R. C. Abbott last summer; it was the  League that stirred up the credits to  the farmers, and it is believed that  what was said and written in this  connection had much to do with the  bill that comes before the provincial  house this week granting the long  term credits to the farmers of the  province; if the work of the first year  is gone overv some reference might  be found to the ��������� Pitt River bridge,  which is now an almost accomplished  fact; it was the Fraser Valley Development League that brought to the  attention of the people of Vancouver  the important fact of patronizing the  Fraser Valley products���������of course  with the assistance of the press, and  in this paricular the Vancouver Sun  deserves credit.    Is this not enough  Just as we go to. press word  reaches this office that- Reeve  Munroe of Sumas Municipality  has resigned his.office as reeve  of the Municipality.  He will not sit at the council  board this Saturday as reeve.  No cause has been assigned to  this paper .for the action of the  reeve. ,  It-is to-be'regretted that Reeve  Munroe hm seen lit to resign  as thereby Sumas Municipality-  has lost an able and paiiisaking  public official,   ���������--        ��������� - ���������  ���������  FIGHTING ABBOTSFORD MEN  ���������The Abbotsford men are sure leaving for the war in Europe���������answering the .country's call.

ENTERTAINMENT IN THE  POPLAR SCHOOL  The Presbytery of ' Westminster  metthis week in Vancouver on Tuesday and Wednesday and was address- to guarantee the life of the League  ed by the Rev. Dr. Herridge of Ottawa, Moderator of the Grand Assembly. The Presbytery nominated Rev  Dr. Neil of Toronto for the office,  of moderator for the coming assembly, which is to meet at Kingston,  Ont on June.the 2nd in Queen's College there and chose the following  ministers of the Presbytery to be  commissioners to the Assembly: A.

Pidgeon, and also the same  number of elders.  Mrs. J. A. McGowan and children  are visiting are visiting her sister,  Mrs. W. F. Knox, of Seattle.  for another year? It has been a hard  struggle but the fact that some of  the things that the League has gone  afer have been accomplished, shows  that there is a necessity for some  such organization, and there being  a necessity it should be supported by  every municipal council and board of  trade in the Valley, but then all of  us are not of the same mind or the  organization would be a flourishing  success.

With the war ended and the Emperor of Germany where the nations  will place him���������unless he dies before  hand���������and the Sultan of Turkey,  residing somewhere in the heart of  Asia Minor, European civilization  should advance along the lines of  freedom.  (From Fraser Valley Record)  It may be���������although apparently  not likely���������that Mission City will be  treated to an evening on "Patriotism  and Production" by representatives  of .the Dominion and Provincial legislatures, or their appointees. It how  ever reminds one of the favorite say-  ing in the story of Croly, the old  Scotch parson, who used to occasionally imbibe rather freely, but who  always said "Dinna do as I do, but  do as I say". What a government  through its peoples' representatives  tell the people, it itself should carry,  into practice, and in various ways  should make it easy for the' people  to put into actual ..practice..  Martin Burrell,  Minister of -Agriculture for the Dominion House, representing Kootenay,a district where  there is probably less agriculture going on-than any other rural district  in Canada, conceived an idea that it  would be a good idea to have speakers hold meetings    throughout    the  country, to tell the frmers to use the  Best Seed;  to Clean your Seed, and  how to solve the    Farm    "Labour"  Problem,  also  suggesting    the    Increasing of your Stock; etc.���������a matter   or  matters  that  the   provincial  government has been spending much  time and labor on, and with success.  From the time of the cultivation of  the first acre of land.in Canada���������several hundred years ago���������the farmer  ha_ endeavored to carry this out- to  the best of his ability and without  much assistance from    the  government at    Ottawa.    Of    course proclaiming these homely truths to the  few farmers who attend these meetings will do no real harm, but there  is  something  more than mere platform oratory wanted.    He wants the  assistance of the government���������thedo-  minion' government in protecting the  Canadian markets    against    foreign  products brought into the country to  the detriment of the Canadian farmer.   ��������� In   this   matter   the   provincial  government is helpless, but it must  be admitted they are telling the fruitgrowers and farmers of this province  a lot of useful things about the best  way to grow fruit, etc., even passing  a resolution asking    the    Dominion  government to put a duty on foreign  fruit in order to conserve the markets of the province for the.men who  till the soil in the province. The Mc-  Bride government are to bo commended for the course of instruction they  are carying out during the past few  years. ,       '  The Canadian farmer is alive to  the many opportunities that are before him these days, but instead of  holding meetings throughout the provinces, the Dominion government had  better pass legislation, to assist the  people in having the full benefit of  the home market.  One of the reasons that these touring encyclopaedias of useful information to farmers did not come to  this district north of the\.Fraser is  that they probably were ashamed to  face the fruitgrower with their ideas  for fear of being iip against it with  awkward- questions which the frui-  grower might ask him about the protecting the prairie markets and the  provincial markets for the-fruitgrowers of this province. The fruitgrowers can ask these questions all right.  The Dominion government under  Mr. Martin Burrell is taking the impractical course, although some of  the oratory is no, doubt good.  What does Mr., Blakemore know  about the-farming and frulgrowing  of this province or any other. He is  merely an engineer; or a handy man  to pick up a few dollars from the  Doukhobor commission or a hot-air  speil to a small audience of farmers  many of whom know a lot more  than he does about the subjects he  talks about.  When such an important work is  being carried on, why not get all  experts in the particular line taken  up-?- '  BRITISH  COLUMBIA'S  MORATORIUM  ��������� The following is the full* text of,  the moratorium measure introduced  in the British Columbia.legislature:  ���������1.

After  his father and mother went away,  Little Bear .was dancing a bear dance  beside the lilac-.bush when a stranger looked thro' the railway and said  "Are you one 'of tlie Three Bears?  Is your father called the Big Bear  and your mother the Middle sized  Bear?"  ��������� "Yes, we are the Three Bears family", said the, Little Bear.  "Then open the gate, and come  with me," said the stranger, 1 am  Mr. Circus Man."  Now the circus man went into the  forest on purpose to catch Little Bear  In his hand he carried a chain and  collar.    He wished to put the collar  round  Little  Bear's  neck  and  drag  him   by the   chain   away   from   the  Bear in*a-tent/with this sign:  Side Show;  Bring the-children to see1 the  Little Bear, whose home was visited -by , ��������� ,- - "  Goldenlocks!--  "Only'ten.-cents admission!'

Will, you come with me to  the  circus,  Little  Bear?"  "I should like to see the circus,"  spoke the Little Bear, "but I can't  go until'my father and mother come  back from the black berry patch. Mr.  Circus Man." I should think* you  would be afraid of the big elephants  bigger than our house?"  "Oh"-answered Mr. Circus Man,"  "I am so brave I am not afraid of  the elephants."  "I should think," went en the  little Bear "that you would be afraid  of the great hippopotamus?  "Oh, -no, Littl- Bear,"-the circus  man said "I am so brave I am not  afraid of anything: You come with  me.    You  see  I   am  not  afraid  of  Mr. Circus Man never finished that  speech, because at that moment the  Father and Mother Bear returned,  and Mr. Circus Man suddenly looked  terribly frightened. For half a second he stared at the Middle-sized  Bear and the Big Bear and then he  turned and ran so fast that his coat  tails  stood  out behind!  Little Bear laughed until he hiccoughs.     What is the matter with M  Circus Man?  asked Little Bear at last.  "He was afraid of us", answered  Mother Bear.  "Afraid of you!" exclaimed Little  Bear; and then he laughed harder  than ever, because he thought it so  funny that any one could be so a-  fraid of his good father and mother  And that night when Little Bear  laughed in his sleep, Mother Bear  smiled and said, "Maybe he is dreaming of Mr. Circus* Man running a-  way from us.

Mr. Donald McLean, Port Coquit-  lam's old timer, who with his family has just returned home after  spending the winter, in California,  the itinerary taking in-the Exn?sit-  .ion-, speaks enthusiastically of all he  has seen during the past few monthB  From information and data handed  the Review by Mr. McLean it is readily apparent that the Canadian er-  hibit is a magnificent representation  of the fair Dominion's life and .work  The Oakland Inquirer on the eve of  the opening of the Canadian building   stated:  "Canada, when her building at the  Panama-Pacific International exposition is officially dedicated tomorrow  with ceremonies reminiscent of the  old world pomp, will lay stress on  the fact that she is England's eldest daughter and that as the mother  is not officially represented at the exposition, she will have 'to be host  in the name of the British Empire."  The total investment made is, close  to three-quarter million dollars.  Varied  Exhibit  The Honorable Martin Burrell. Canadian minister of Agriculture, represented the government at the dedication of the ceremonies, together  with W. Hutchison, chief of the Canadian Commission. Short addresses  by these' men, speeches by Governor Hiram W. Johnson, President  Charles C. Moore and Mayor James  Rolph Jr., were part of the program  United States soldiers and military  bands formed the official escort and  Canadian anthems were the order of  the   day.  The Canadian building contains  without doubt, the most complete individual mining and agricultural exhibit in the entire exposition. It  covers 70,000 square feet and was de  signed for two chief reasons; one  was to show the American farmer  that the tide of opportunity lies toward tho wheat- fields of the west  and the other was to induce the Canadians who have emigrated to the  United States, to return.  Agriculture, fisheries, mines, forestry and horticulture, the natural  resources of Canada, are magnificently represented. The throe Canadian  railroads subsidized by tho government are exploited by photographs  and panoramas. In fact the transportation facilities of Canada havo  been made one of the chief factors  in the showing.  Art of Taxidermist  . From an artistic point of view the  display, which by the way Is not entered for award', is unique., More  than 300 head of moose, deer, buffaloes and other game have been placed in conspicuous parts of the building. The most notable feature of  the decorative work,' however, is a  wide frieze with relief work made of  grasses, leaves and shubs depicting  rural scenery in the different parts of  Canada. The. Canadian canals, the  Welland, theRideau, the Chambly,  the Ottawa, the Sault St. Marie, the  Lachine the Soulonges, the Beau-  harnols and others are shown in tableau.      ,  An Immense diorama, called "The  Past and Present of Canada" shows  with numerous specimens of Can-  dian fauna, the development of this  vast country^ Mountain quail, partridge, deer,- otter, beavers, antelope  badgers, caribou, bison, musk ox and  deer illustrate the possibilities for  the hunter and a dam of live beav-  vers'adds to this display.
